It's probably also worth noting that this effectively punts on the issue
of how to allow enclaves to relax the permissions on pages, like taking
a page from R=>RW, or R=>RX. RX isn't allowed unless the page was
*added* originally with RX or RWX.

Since dynamically added pages start with initial RW permissions, they
can *never* be RX or RWX since they did not start with execute
permissions. That's a limitation, of course, but it's one that can be
dealt with separately from this set.

Does that sound sane to everyone?
